Cubic zirconia redefines everything you thought you knew about zirconia crowns. A revolutionary new approach to zirconia, cubeX2, combines the durability of full-contour zirconia with translucency on par with IPS e.max®. Its 720 MPa fractural strength makes it strong enough for posterior crowns, while its lifelike shading and light transmission makes cubeX2 an ideal solution for premolar and incisal indications.
A high-esthetic alternative to IPS e.max® restorations, cubeX2 cubic zirconia is indicated for single crowns and three-unit bridges in anterior and posterior restorations. Its high resiliency makes it suitable for posterior restorations when esthetics demand more translucency than conventional full-contour zirconia.
The ideal preparation is a 0.8 mm chamfer or rounded shoulder. A feather-edge margin with 1.0-1.5 mm of occlusal reduction is also acceptable.

DAL recommends the Brasseler USA® Dialite® ZR Kit for finishing and polishing cubeX2. This two-step system allows you to quickly achieve maximum surface smoothness, enhancing your restoration’s longevity and minimizing wear to opposing dentition. Use adequate water when adjusting.
To successfully remove saliva, the crown should be cleaned with Ivoclean, a zirconia oxide solution from Ivoclar Vivadent. This zirconia oxide solution is placed inside the restoration for 20 seconds and then rinsed out.
